DRUMMING A BEAT ON A HUNDRED-YEAR-OLD TYPEWRITER

We have seen a fair share of unusual items being turned into musical instruments. Luckily, with a little bit of hacking it is possible to turn almost anything into a MIDI controller. [William Sun Petrus] just converted a 1920s typewriter into a drum machine and delivers a hell of a live performance on it. The build is rather simple, all [William Sun Petrus] needed was an Arduino Mega and lots of wires to co ...
